Flake: Trump's Wall Not the Answer to Better Border Security

("The Cats Roundtable"/AM 970 The Answer)

Arizona Sen. John Flake said he opposed the idea by his party’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump to build a wall along the Mexican border as neither "very feasible or advisable," but did acknowledge that better border security is needed.

In an interview on "The Cats Roundtable" Sunday radio show on AM 970 New York hosted by John Catsimatidis, Flake, who recently said he does not see himself voting for Trump, stressed that "We have about a 750-mile border in Arizona with Mexico, and we bear the brunt of the federal government's failure to have a secure border."

Flake, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee and has long been a supporter of bipartisan legislation for immigration overhaul, said he agreed with the recent Supreme Court decision that left in place a block by the lower court on the president's executive action that would grant work permits and legal status to millions of illegal immigrants.

Flake said the president had clearly overstepped his authority and it was Congress that needs to pass vital immigration reform.

Commenting on Great Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, Flake said it was fears of the immigrant crisis there that fueled the decision.

The senator said the "severe geopolitical and strategic implications for the West" stemming from the decision actually concerns central and eastern Europe, "because those countries, without a strong European Union, will be tempted to throw in their lot with the Russians."
